Plus, baby quilts are just the right size project and is something you could tackle faster and easier than a larger quilt. For most people a baby quilt becomes more than just a baby quilt but a sentimental piece in their life that they cherish and keep for the rest of your life.

           Color Wheel Basics
Color wheels are not just for artists anymore; they are used by all kinds of creative people working with color—florists and landscape designers, decorators and interior designers, graphic designers, filmmakers, and comic book artists. Did you know even quilters and sewists have been using a color wheel to help with fabric color choices? Even machine embroiderers can use a color wheel to help pick out thread colors for embroidery designs! If you haven’t tried using a color wheel before (or maybe never even heard of one) and would like to learn more about using this tool to help with selecting and coordinating fabrics, this is the series for you!

While I almost always label my quilts, this last year was so busy that I didn’t get to attaching information to everything. That got me thinking about the ways we label our quilts, and I wanted to try something a little different. This tutorial is how I used the built-in alphabets on my sewing machine to add text to the binding itself.
